Serena Williams Wins 5th U.S. Open Title

Serena Williams

It took 3 grueling sets but Serena Williams defeated Victoria Azarenka 7-5, 6-7 (6-8), 6-1 to win her 5th U.S. Open title, and her 17th Grand Slam singles title overall.

“Vika’s such a great opponent; she’s such a fighter,” a relieved Williams said after the match. “It was never over until match point.”

Azarenka was gracious in her defeat. After the match, Azarenka and Williams embraced. “I did everything I could,” Azarenka said. “I fought as hard as I could. But I lost to a great champion.”

Williams, who was pushed to a 3rd set for the first time the entire tournament, told Azarenka it had been an honor to play her.

Williams took home a check worth $3.6 million including a $1 million bonus for winning the US Open Series.

    Thank you for posting this auntie! My girl wins another title and continues to write history!!!! As a tennis fan, I know Serena works her ASS off for these titles. She doesn’t just step on the court to play and win as many suggest…she works hard and fights (mentally and physically) to the bitter end! Last night was a testament to that! Congrats again Serena….continue writing history and making us proud!!! Best wishes on many more titles and Slams!
